I Know That Feel, Bro.

I Know That Feel, Bro.

DeviantART member paperbeatsscissors matches characters from comics, videogames and cartoons and captions them with the sympathetic meme. Can you guess all the character connections?

Full Circle

Full Circle

Callum Cooper and John Kassab place us in a truly unique perspective – on the arc of a jumprope – as it twirls over the heads and under the feet of multiple jumpers. Dizzying and amazing.

Needle Micro Sculptures

Needle Micro Sculptures

Artist Willard Wigan uses a microscope to help create incredibly detailed miniature sculptures which reside in the tiniest of places – inside the eye of a needle. (Second hat tip to Faith is Torment.)

Victor Enrich’s Photography

Victor Enrich’s Photography

Spanish photographer Victor Enrich loves taking pictures of urban landscapes, only to manipulate the structures he captures into surreal shapes that are evidently fake but still seem authentic.

Wire Sculptures

Wire Sculptures

UK artist Derek Kinzett creates incredibly detailed sculptural figures using precisely formed lengths of wire. His life-size human forms are pretty amazing, but we’re partial to the motorcycle.

Darth Skeletor

Darth Skeletor

Artist Ryan Renders created this very clever and perfectly detailed bust modeled after one of the greatest mashups of evil ever conceived. Lightsaber Power Sword ftw.

John Clang Photography

John Clang Photography

For his Time series, John Clang created montage style photographs that show how time moves and emphasize the fact that we all travel, albeit at different times, in the shame shared space.

Triforce Tribute

“An epic multi-medium show celebrating all things Zelda.” Featuring works of over 30 artists who fell in love – just like millions of us – with Miyamoto’s masterpiece. Through 4/21 at Land Gallery.

Maddie on Things

Maddie on Things

Maddie the Coonhound has an impressive ability to balance herself on everyday objects; it’s a good thing this “super serious project about dogs and physics” is being chronicled by Theron Humphrey.

Instruments from Inside

Instruments from Inside

The text in these posters for the Berliner Philharmoniker reads, “Closer to Classical Chamber Music”, a tagline visualized by expansive shots of the interiors of musical instruments.

Shattered Figurines

Shattered Figurines

Photographer Martin Klimas dropped porcelain figurines and snapped pictures of them as they hit the ground, turning these static figures into dynamic martial arts fight scenes.

Steampunk Corkscrew

Steampunk Corkscrew

Rob Higgs knows how to open a bottle of wine like a boss. Using hundreds of bronzed metal springs, gears and other parts, he built this incredible machine to uncork and pour a bottle of wine.

Cobwebs

Cobwebs

Arachnophobes look away! Cyriak fills our screens (and worst nightmares) with an endless barrage of animated spiders crafted from circuit boards, human heads, and other stuff. Get the Raid!

Toy Shining

Toy Shining

Kyle Lambert used his iPad to storyboard Toy Story 3 characters into classic scenes from The Shining. Awesome enough to get an invite from Pixar to bring them to the studio. (Thanks David!)

Coffee Cup Stain Painting

Coffee Cup Stain Painting

We’ve seen OhiseeRED use a basketball to paint. This time she uses a coffee cup, making ring-shaped stains to paint a portrait of Taiwanese pop star Jay Chou. It took her 12 hours to finish it.

The Story of ‘Keep Calm…’

The Story of ‘Keep Calm…’

The tale behind the WWII poster turned meme, straight from the horse’s mouth. Made by Nation and Temujin Doran for Barter Books, the bookstore where the poster was rediscovered in 2000.

Seeing in Circles

Seeing in Circles

You’ve probably never thought about attaching your camera to the end of a power drill. That’s okay. Oscar Lhermitte has you covered, with this hypnotic, kaliedoscopic look at life sent spinning.

Fresh Guacamole

Fresh Guacamole

A clever stop motion short that plays on idioms and homonyms. PES made Fresh Guacamole for Showtime’s Short Stories as a follow up to his award-winning short Western Spaghetti.

Dreamcast Graffiti

Dreamcast Graffiti

French custom artist Oskunk gives us a peek of his workflow, using Sega’s last console as his canvas. Dude’s got some steady hands. Check out more of his art on his website and on his Flickr page.

Exposure

Exposure

You may recall Antony Gormley’s sculptures. Turns out he supersized things in 2010, erecting an 85 foot-tall metal man in the Dutch town of Lelystad. We wonder how tall he’d be if he stood up.

Nine Eyes Photo Project

Nine Eyes Photo Project

Jon Rafman’s Nine Eyes of Google Street View website is a offbeat, ongoing project that publishes the strange scenes that the nine automated Google Street View car cameras capture. (Thanks Max!)

Mitch Hedberg Wood Etchings

Mitch Hedberg Wood Etchings

In tribute to the late, great surreal comic Mitch Hedberg, artist Kiersten Essenpreis created these hilarious wood etchings with quotes which make us wonder if Mitch was Philosoraptor’s father.

Yolk

Yolk

Similarly to his unpeeled tangerine painting, artist Duane Keiser makes omelettes art from his broken egg in this progressive, time-lapse painting, shot one day at a time, then animated.

Spreepark Abandoned

Spreepark Abandoned

There’s just something so surreal about abandoned amusement parks, and this defunct park in Berlin might be our favorite yet, with its fallen dinosaurs and creepy mustachioed car.
